I would have posted sooner but found out the website was down when we got home from the hosptial.

Elizabeth Irene
4/24/08
6lbs 12oz
19" long

The birth could not have been more perfect, I was only in labor for 3 hours and didn't even have to push her out my body did everything! My OB almost didn't make it into the room and her head had already come out when she came flying into the room to catch her. I found the whole scene with the nurses freaking out and my OB racing into the room so funny that I actually started laughing which is what pushed her body out. It was awesome! No tearing at all and I really don't even feel like I've given birth, I'm not sore at all and my bleeding is almost non-existent.
She's a dream baby too, she rarely cries unless she's hungry and she is a pro at nursing already. We had a few latch issues the first day but as soon as she got the hang of it we were off running and haven't looked back. My milk came in yesterday and she is one happy camper, she's on the boob almost constantly but I wouldn't have it any other way. There is nothing sweeter than looking down and seeing a little smile with milk running down her chin

My other kiddos love her and have been such a big help! She really does make our family complete.
